Re: Why am I buzzed and shocked?

: Ho ho! I'm surprised you're still alive.

: Ok, best thing? take your guitar and get it repaired by a pro. Humming and other electrical\grounding problebs comes from the internal connections not being set properly.. take it to a shop and dont die!

This reminds me of an occurance a few years ago. I had my guitar, stepped up to the mic, and BAM! everything went bright blue and I jumped straight back into my gear...Yeah, definitly make sure everything's grounded.

Re: Why am I buzzed and shocked?

Sounds like your guitar is not grounded properly.Get it
grounded immediatly!! A P.A.'s polarity is usually positively charged,while guitar amp's (stacks) are negativly charged.By touching a mic and your strings you are bridging the gap,completing the curcuit.This can kill you...no joke!
Be careful

Any reviews of a Johnston JG625

I'm an absolute beginner who's looking for purchase a guitar. I've seen a Johnston JG625 being auctioned off on ebay and wonder if anyone has one who can tell me if it's worth it. There's little info on this brand other than it's an import, but it has a solid spruce top. I'm looking for non electric acoustic guitar, somewhere in the price range of $150 and the type of music I "hope" to play would be rock. I would be glad for any suggestions or if anyone has experience with a Johnston.

Tuners and Bridge

Hi. I'm thinking about replacing my Maccarty's tunning pegs and maybe the bridge. Do you guys know any good site were I can find replacement parts, like those used in other more expensive prs models?. Thank you.

Re: Tuners and Bridge

Hi,
Did you try stewmac.com yet? I'm not sure if they have the high end you need, but they seem to have some solid replacement stuff... wilkinson, schaller, etc. Try ebay, too.

Re: Tuners and Bridge

hagstrom 12 string

I've got a mid-60's hagstrom electric 12 string that's in pretty good shape. Anyone have a ballpark figure on what it's worth? Thanks

stupid question

is it easier to take lessons or teach yourself to play? (i would think its obviously the 1st one but people tell me differently)
what do you think?

me again

anyone taught themself how long does it take?

Re: me again

Do a little of both. You should have someone teach you the basic stuff because it's frustrating enough as it is at first, and then you should teach yourself. Lessons might get you sharper on technique and theory and speed, but teaching yourself beings more creativity, innovation, feeling and style.
Just my two cents.
-Rick B.

Re: me again

As an ongoing learning process, "teaching yourself" never stops. You can always improve technique, feel, and repertoire.

Re: stupid question

I agree with Rick, never stop teaching yourself but, after 25 years of playing, I started taking lessons. It is amazing how a credible teacher can open your eyes to techniques that you (or at least I) couldn't figure out on my own. My experience has taught me that some of the best teachers are not teachers at all, just people you jam with. You learn some licks from them and vice-versa. This may sound like a no-brainer, but playing along with cds can help tremendously. My prefference is classic rock but have found that country music is easy and fun to learn.

For what it's worth,
Don

$$GET RICH FAST!! MAKE $6,000 IN TWO WEEKS$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

How to turn $6 into $6,000!
READING THIS COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE! SO, JUST DO IT!
This really works!

Hello,
I'm like a lot of others out there who have financial woes and I decided to try something new. If it works for me then I will be able to get myself out of a very difficult financial situation. Please read and see what results another got, it's pretty exciting! It REALLY CAN MAKE YOU EASY MONEY!! IT WORKS!!! BUT YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW IT TO THE LETTER FOR IT TO WORK!!!!

I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little
while back, I was browsing through newsgroups
and came across an article similar to this that said you could make
thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of
$6.00! So I thought, "Yeah right, this must be a scam", but
like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said
that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated in the
article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of
the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups.
(There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it
over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I
figured: "what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00,
right?" Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!!...
within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I
figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my
first week, I made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had
made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over
$10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I
have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in
rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more
than that on the !! Let me tell you how this works and most
importantly, why it works....Also, make sure you print a copy of this
article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it.
I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you
will start making more money than you thought possible by doing
something so easy!

Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or
download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come
in!

It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus
postage)

IMPORTANT: This is not a - ; it is not indecent; it is not
illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!!

If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
extraordinary dividends.

PLEASE NOTE:
Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can be
yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of
the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its
success by carefully adhering to the instructions.

You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business
your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in
the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are
happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made
from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from
people like you and me asking to be included in that list.

Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on
each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now
get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of
paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent
thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal
them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of
paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00
bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for
it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried
about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S.
Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed
legal! Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

#1) Annie J
716 39th street
Des Moines IA 50312

#2) BETTY K.
404 6th street Suite B-3
Coralville IA. 52241

#3) Gordon Kuan
7648 Highcliff street
Rosemead CA. 91770

#4) Kimberly R.
P.O. box 7048
Stateline, NV 89449

#5) Maria O.
1275 Angora Lake Rd.
S. Lake Tahoe, CA. 96150

#6) Dan R.
695 E Patriot Blvd #69
Reno, NV 89511

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move
the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR
Name as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as
close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at
least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All
you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you
make!

This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18
Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal laws.
Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money,
you can use it again, and again.

PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the
honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully
adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of
integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many
others have received will come your way.

NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you,
either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you.
This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might
be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk
of mail theft.)

So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed,
six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List
Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list
geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will
be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for
only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send
it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!

---DIRECTIONS ----- FOR HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS------------

Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own
posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and
drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy'
from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the
computer's memory.
Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top
of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will
paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name
to the list. Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If
you want to do your postings in different settings, you'll always
have this file to go back to.
Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for
various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites,
discussions.)
Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new
message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste
from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that
everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a
particular group, click the post message button. You're done with
your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is
jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of
it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE
MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL
MAKE!! BUT
YOU
HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200** That's it! You will begin receiving
money from around the world within days! You may eventually want to
rent a P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail you will receive. If
you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as
the postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE
CORRECT.**

Now the WHY part:
Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low
example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now,
each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200
postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each
of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each
make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I
will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn
around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5
replies each, I will make an additional $625.00! OK, now here is the
fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with
my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me
$3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200
newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200
newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With an original
investment of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the
list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send
out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6
again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you
realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the
internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are
now!! So, can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think
so... People have said, "what if the plan is played out and no
one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that
happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest
people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are
willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new
users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual
internet. Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really
work. God bless you!

$10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I
have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in
rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more
than that on the !! Let me tell you how this works and most
importantly, why it works....Also, make sure you print a copy of this
article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it.
I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you
will start making more money than you thought possible by doing
something so easy!

Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or
download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come
in!

It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus
postage)

IMPORTANT: This is not a - ; it is not indecent; it is not
illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!!

If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
extraordinary dividends.

PLEASE NOTE:
Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can be
yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of
the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its
success by carefully adhering to the instructions.

You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business
your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in
the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are
happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made
from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from
people like you and me asking to be included in that list.

Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on
each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now
get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of
paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent
thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal
them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of
paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00
bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for
it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried
about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S.
Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed
legal! Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

#1) Annie J
716 39th street
Des Moines IA 50312

#2) BETTY K.
404 6th street Suite B-3
Coralville IA. 52241

#3) Gordon Kuan
7648 Highcliff street
Rosemead CA. 91770

#4) Kimberly R.
P.O. box 7048
Stateline, NV 89449

#5) Maria O.
1275 Angora Lake Rd.
S. Lake Tahoe, CA. 96150

#6) Dan R.
695 E Patriot Blvd #69
Reno, NV 89511

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move
the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR
Name as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as
close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at
least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All
you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you
make!

This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18
Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal laws.
Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money,
you can use it again, and again.

PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the
honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully
adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of
integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many
others have received will come your way.

NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you,
either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you.
This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might
be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk
of mail theft.)

So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed,
six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List
Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list
geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will
be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for
only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send
it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!

---DIRECTIONS ----- FOR HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS------------

Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own
posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and
drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy'
from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the
computer's memory.
Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top
of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will
paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name
to the list. Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If
you want to do your postings in different settings, you'll always
have this file to go back to.
Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for
various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites,
discussions.)
Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new
message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste
from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that
everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a
particular group, click the post message button. You're done with
your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is
jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of
it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE
MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL
MAKE!! BUT
YOU
HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200** That's it! You will begin receiving
money from around the world within days! You may eventually want to
rent a P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail you will receive. If
you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as
the postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE
CORRECT.**

Now the WHY part:
Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low
example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now,
each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200
postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each
of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each
make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I
will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn
around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5
replies each, I will make an additional $625.00! OK, now here is the
fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with
my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me
$3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200
newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200
newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With an original
investment of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the
list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send
out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6
again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you
realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the
internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are
now!! So, can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think
so... People have said, "what if the plan is played out and no
one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that
happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest
people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are
willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new
users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual
internet. Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really
work. God bless you!

EPIPHONE RIVIERA ELECTRICS PROBS

How do you get at the volume and tone pots inside a Riviera? I need to re solder(or replace) one and dont know how to get in.
Also the neck pickup some times doesnt work but everything seems connected properly(without seeing inside)any suggestions?

Phil,
Dan Erlewine's Guitar Player Repair Guide book has a three page section on re-wiring
a GIbson 335 that would probably be helpful in explaining how this is done. Basically you
remove the rear pickup and pull all the guts through hole, rewire it and replace it. That's
how they do it at the factory.

I think you'll probably find the neck pickup problem is a bad switch, especially since
it's intermittent......

The Erlewine book is highly recomended, even if you don't do your own repairs.....

Doug

Tahara guitar

I have a guitar which says made by Tahara. I would just like to know where this company is and whether or not they have a web site.

Re: Tahara guitar

: I have a guitar which says made by Tahara. I would just like to know where this company is and whether or not they have a web site.

Re: Tahara guitar

I just found the comment about the Tahara Guitar. I have a mandolin which also has the words "made by Tahara", It has the name "Maya" on the kneck. I also have a Maya banjo which must be the same company. Both were bought about 20 years ago and I can't find any now. Does anyone know any more about these instruments?

texmex pickups

I'm a new guitarist. I own a crumby acoustic but i've learned to play my brother's electric. he went to college so i want to buy a guitar. I want to get a strat but i'm not sure which to get. I was thinking of the deluxe fat strat. I'm wondering how much better the texmex pickups are than normal pickup. Will I be able to play be satisfied playing it for many years, once i have acquired the ear to tell the difference between different pickups.

You silly guitar players, you all need to buy a bass.

it's a much better instrument. sounds better, not so twangy and annoying.

Re: You silly guitar players, you all need to buy a bass.

: it's a much better instrument. sounds better, not so twangy and annoying.

I play mainly guitar but I have a cheap bass.. but I more like play guitar than bass!!!!

Re: You silly guitar players, you all need to buy a bass.

bass is nice to play....but guitar is just 1000 times better !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: You silly guitar players, you all need to buy a bass.

: it's all good. i've made money playing both. i have a distinct and individual love for both. rock needs both. it is true that i have had more diverse gigs with bass. jazz, theater, show tunes, choral. but rock demands guitar. bass is almost essential but has been shown to be optional in some rock venues. remember the doors?

Re: You silly guitar players, you all need to buy a bass.

: it's a much better instrument. sounds better, not so twangy and annoying.

hahahaha... you know very few people choose to play bass- "..there are people in the audience who like to LISTEN to the bass, because they love those low frequencies, and the way they make their bodies feel- but the role of the bass player in the band is not usually the most exciting role, because he has to play repeated figures. "...Electric bassists are often failed guitar players, demoted to this duty after a band meeting in the garage when they where thirteen."
Frank Zappa

OK- there is a point in that. Most bass players seem to be frustrated guitar players -specially those playing 6-string but only use one or two
and play it like a guitar solo...

(on the other hand the REALLY frustrated guitar players are the keyboard players. Remember those synths you could hang around your neck, they were sooo hot in the 80´s?)

This raises the question "Why?" and the answer is simple- since we all believe that the only way to get the blow-job after the show is to play Lead guitar.

"what?! you´d rather blow the guitar player? Hah! look at this high-tech dork I`M wearing.."

fender-prosonic

i want to know if it`s possible to get less distortion
on the gain chanel from my fender-prosonic with changeing tubes? if yes please tell me what to do
thank you

Re: fender-prosonic

try turning down the gain on the amp, lowering the volume on your guitar a bit, or lowering your guitars pickups slightly.

Re: fender-prosonic

it is possible to make the gain less aggressive by changing the tubes. At the moment you will probably find that your amp is fitted with fender groove tube valves, by changing these to the fender standard valves should enable you to lose some gain. i also have a fender prosonic an i usually operate with gain 2 set to zero, i have the gain 1 set to about 2. this should help.

broken string problem

while i was tuning my guitar i broke one of the strings. i didn't think it was a problem but then the other 5 strings would only play on certain frets and it seems like they're muted. has anyone ever had a problem like this and know a solution?

Re: broken string problem

well first of all im gonna assume that you put the 6th string back on and then you had the problem. When you get that sound like the string is "muted" its called "freting out" its not cause by your strings, although sometimes it might, i know how to fix your problem but i need more info on your guitar.
if you have ICQ my # is 69540464 , if not, e-mail me and i'll help ya out.

hey, sounds to me like you need to adjust the height of your bridge by your pick ups. when you tighten your strings it pulls the neck of the guitar a little so when one breaks and your bridge is too low the first few frets touch the strings. If you have an acoustic guitar the nut that your strings rest on may be worn down so you'll have to get a new one, you can buy them at a guitar store. but anyway, just get the right tools raise the bridge if you have an electric guitar.
